First, Welcome.
Secondly, I would determine which direction do you wanna go with the car? Buying a 250 dollar intake then installing a turbo system down the road which will not utilize the NA intake is double spending. Same thing with the supercharger. For exhaust I would go 3in for a turbo car but for an NA car only 2.5in max. I would think about what you wanna do with the car before purchasing parts.

Welcome...
and I would go for the exhaust first since the intake may not fit when you get the TC
But really its your decision and you know what direction you want to take so good luck and looking forward to seeing your ride :)

As said above, if you get a 2.2 NA Intake, it will not work with a turbo or supercharger...An exhaust would be a better "safe alternative", if you were to get a 2.5" cat-back, it wouldn't be too small to run with the turbo, after all the stock SS turbo's are ran with a 2.5" exhaust.

I would buy wheels/tires and suspension and take it autoxing! I will reinterate to decide which way you wanna take the car instead of buying parts twice.

EDIT: I know you said engine mods, but I would do these mods first before anything else but thats just me.
